Read Gayot's Restaurant Review of Le Cirque

Le Cirque founder Sirio Maccioni is a maestro who embodies the energy of New York itself, and his legendary landmark restaurant has long been a chic theater for the city’s celebrity scene. Maccioni’s dramatic personality is only rivaled by the exquisite and stylish French food chef Craig Hopson conjures in his kitchen. Le Cirque’s third incarnation in the Bloomberg building features a gorgeous interior by Adam Tihany, updating the restaurant for a new century while tipping its aesthetic hat to the monkeys and circus balls of a storied past.
